Kudos to author Mark Simon for writing a fine article for ASTD’s T&D Magazine entitled E-Learning No How: 7 Disastrous Decisions Sure to Sink Any E-learning Implementation. Here are the Myths dispelled.

  1. Do your pre-announcement campaign and stakeholder buy-in program!
  2. Have an assessment (testing) and record keeping strategy.
  3. Document the technical and ergonomic environment of the workstation trainees will use.
  4. Know your LMS administrator and run a test with a prototype course.
  5. Keep your navigation simple and provide an interface explanation.
  6. Make the course home page easy to access.
  7. Make sure your learner workstation can technically play your course. Not all workplace computers have audio cards and an updated version of Flash and Acrobat.
